“Country towns are realising their most compelling assets are their own stories and art is the best way to tell them, while bringing in tourists and strengthening local economies.” – ABC Central West Victoria
The Rainbow Arts and Culture Foundation recognises art as a driver for social change and a key contributor to empowering regional art, culture and community. The Pyrenees Sculpture Park and Trail (in collaboration with Rainbow Serpent Festival and Pyrenees Shire Council) will feature unique visionary artworks that celebrate life, art, community and nature – positioning Beaufort as a gateway to the beautiful Pyrenees region while connecting with the wider Lexton community and local artists.
World Class Kinetic Sculpture Cradle will put the Pyrenees on the map and leads the long term development of a Sculpture Trail across the region. Our innovative creative concept, which brings communities together to create some of the art, is part of the Pick My Project community grants initiative. We are excited to be part of 2,500 great project ideas selected from across Victoria. Community voting will open at 9am, Monday 13 August 2018 and close at 5pm, Monday 17 September. In order to vote for the World Class Kinetic Sculpture Cradle and have this project develop in the Pyrenees, you will need to register online for a Pick My Project account for the Central Highlands Region where our project is situated. You will be shown a minimum of 30 projects in the local community, from which you will be able to vote for your three favourites.
